Pat and all,

To continue with the discussion about the paperwork used and the use of home
road vs. foreign cars, I've scanned and sent to the list an EL Interline
Switching Waybill. It is a boxcar of coffee from Maxwell House in Hoboken
for General Foods in Youngstown to be delivered to the YS (Youngstown &
Southern) via the PRR at Haselton Yard. You can clearly see the stamp on
the waybill "Abstracted Haselton Yard" and on the back is a stamp showing
the time received or checked in at Haselton Yard. I have an entire stack of
these things for General Foods in Youngstown. Most are like this one,
coffee from Maxwell House in Hoboken. Others are from General Foods in
Kankakee, IL and are loads of dog food and animal feed; a few others are
cereal from General Foods in Battle Creek, MI and General Foods in Buffalo,

One thing to note on this one that is scanned is that it is an eastbound
movement in a GN boxcar. Speaks to the practice of loading a car as it is
routed home. Some of the other cars used from Hoboken to Youngstown are
CBQ, MP, UP, NW, TM, CNW, IC, SCL. Plenty of EL, DLW and PRR cars as well.
The movements from Kankakee are in RI, ATSF and MILW cars. Battle Creek was
a PRR car and Buffalo was an NW car.
